TRIGGER WARNING: basically fucking everything, pretty much…
everything you could ever possibly hope to use against me, in black and white, in my own handwriting, delivered to your mailbox, by me. well. by the postal service. but yeah.
#1: early life and development
#3: love and romance
#4: oh god what am i even doing? fuck.
#5: a pretty shitty thing that happened to me
#7: miscellaneous sadness
you get all 8 mini zines in one neat little bundle. i originally set out to make one giant shitstorm of a zine, all about all the things that hurt / have hurt me that i’ve either never told a single person ever, or only told maybe one or two people in an attempt to process, deal with, and eliminate everything from my head. but breaking it down proved to be much more manageable and efficient…as well as easier to write, read, and stomach. you don’t have to necessarily read them in any specific order…but they’re numbered. if ya wanna. no pressure.
this is probably my first time being this fucking honest with myself…and i guess you, too. so don’t use it against me. i’ll cry.
these will never be “sold out;” i’m keeping the master proofs and can make more copies as needed, so don’t worry. the price is set to $8.00, a dollar per issue, and is mostly based on content. this is some pretty heavy stuff. i feel lighter, now that i’ve gotten it all out of me and onto paper.
shipping is $2.00 (to anywhere in the united states…) to cover postage costs. and a mailing envelope. because we’re not primitive, are we?? no.
enjoy. or at least try not to throw up.
you can order via etsy HERE.
i don’t like fun and i have confetti in places where confetti should not be.

dani, jaiden, and nick aren’t the only ones who are up to somethin’…
if you haven’t already checked out knitXcore, do it!! lots of stuff happening in the crafting world veryyy soon.
Officially putting together the files for publishing, here’s the cover as promised.
COVER ART FOR ‘DIFFERENT VERSIONS OF NOTHING’ SNEAK PEEK!!
the zine is wrapping up very nicely, you’ll have it soon!!
Hay you all, I can’t remember if I’ve posted much about this on here but the pages of the zine are now in my possession. The cover will be posted in a couple of days and tomorrow I’m going to start working on the layout for publishing!
For those who don’t remember or don’t know, it’s a collaboration between Dani Tauber and I. She did the writing, I did the illustrations. It’s called Different Versions of Nothing. It’s not massive in size but it is massive in content. It contains the painful things that have stuck in our minds over the years.
Get ready to throw up.
(p.s. I made a Facebook page for my drawings, right here.)
GUYS IT’S ALMOST FINIIIIIIIIIIIISHEDDDDDDDDD!!!!!!!!
if you’ve been really diggin’ my writing lately (and a lot of you have, and i really can’t thank you enough…), it’d be rad if you’d sort of help me spread the word or something. like if your best friend feels like shit, let them know they’re not alone by directing them to the last 4 years of my life…or something. or just reblog this. i figure people will see it and stop by to make fun of my life choices, but stay for the writing. or stay to make fun of my life choices. whatever, man.
i have two zines and a book of basketcase love poetry in progress. all of them, utterly soul-crushing. and vomit inducing. and ugh.
